Maui Invitational Predictions

As usual, one of the major highlights of the non-conference portion of the season is the annual Maui Invitational held in Hawaii. Thanksgiving week always brings the top teams in the country together in a variety of tournaments, and Maui is typically the most jam-packed event of the holiday period. This year, three top-10 teams are in the field (North Carolina, Notre Dame, Texas), as well as two more NCAA Tournament contenders (Alabama, Saint Joseph's). Who will come out on top?
